As far as I remember there has only been one knock on our door October 31st in all the years we've lived here. Tonight there was such a knock.
Trick or treat! It's my neighbors K and P with a box that they hand out to me the second I open the door. The box had a message written on with a Sharpie: Happy Halloween. Just a "little" treat. It's not flan, but it is sweet.
The box was opened immediately. Inside there were six mini cupcakes, all seemed to be different flavors, different toppings and decorations. I grabbed the one that looked a little orange, the color of sherbet and stuck my left index finger on the frosting, to try.
The trying never stopped. By the time my friends said goodnight I had gobbled up the first cupcake. The butter-cream frosting was sweet but not overly so, pale orange in hue and definitely orange sherbet flavored and the cake--vanilla-- was dense and moist. Delightful.
The banana cupcake (banana flavored frosting with banana chip topper and vanilla cake) was also delicious and there is a coffee one with my name on it.
When I looked at the label on the box (pink and black with a cute frosted cupcake) it read New York Cupcakes 175 Bellevue Square, Bellevue, Washington. 425. 283 5445 Headquarters: 425.454.NYCC
Someone is taking a drive to the Eastside tomorrow...
